Babel Buster®... The LonWorks Gateway Brand Everybody Remembers.

LonWorks gateways are used to connect Modbus or BACnet devices to a LonWorks network in a manner that makes those devices behave like a LonMark certified sensor or actuator. The Babel Buster LonWorks Gateways themselves are LonMark Certified, based on the LonMark sensor and actuator functional profiles. The gateway’s implementation of sensor and actuator simply leaves the door open for you to define what the actual sensor and actuator physical hardware consists of.

The LonMark Certified Babel Buster gateways are intended to be commissioned on a managed LonWorks network using a commissioning tool such as Echelon’s LonMaker or other equivalent tool. Control Solutions’ product line also includes models for connecting LonWorks devices to Modbus or BACnet networks where Modbus or BACnet are the primary network rather than LonWorks. If your network is not LonWorks, then you should start by visiting the Control Solutions web page listing devices for that protocol.

Convert LonWorks to Modbus RTU RS-485

BB2-2010 LonWorks to Modbus RTU RS-485 Gatewau

Babel Buster

BB2-2010

Babel Buster® BB2-2010 is a standard (bindable) LonWorks® node that functions as a Modbus RTU RS-485 master/slave. A large number of data objects gives you flexibility in mapping Modbus registers to scalar or structured LonWorks network variables. A single structured network variable maps to multiple Modbus registers. Packed Modbus registers may be parsed to multiple network variables when reading. Multiple data objects may be packed into a single Modbus register when writing. All standard Modbus register types are supported.

Babel Buster BB2-2010 is the upgraded replacement for the legacy Babel Buster 485. The BB2-2010 provides four times the network variable capacity, faster processing speed, and requires no installation credits for installation in an LNS based network.
